Sorry Archer, says Williamson

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson wants to apologise to Jofra Archer after he was subjected to "racial insults" by a spectator during the fifth and final day of the first Test against New Zealand at the Bay Oval here.

"It's certainly against everything that we as Kiwis are about, and I certainly hope that nothing like that ever happens again," Williamson said.

"I can only apologise on behalf of Kiwis to Jofra, not only from our team and how we look to conduct ourselves, but what we expect of Kiwis in general.

"It's a horrific thing. In a country, and a setting where it is very much multi-cultural, it's something we need to put to bed quickly and hope nothing like that ever happens again. It certainly won't if there's any influence we can have on it."
